Have you completed your 2020 census yet?

Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau strives to get an accurate count of each person living in the United States. But, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, traditional means of census outreach are no longer available.

So how can you ensure your communities are counted during this time of social distancing? Use email, social media and phone calls to remind community members to complete their census online at my2020census.gov, or by calling 844-330-2020. These methods are easy and safe and don't require any in-person interaction.

Experts use census data to respond to public health crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Complete the 2020 Census and ensure your community can respond and take action for years to come.
